Seliskar Splits 1:32.3 as Cal Downs Pac-12 Meet Record in 800 FR Relay

2017 MEN’S PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Cal Bears kept the ball rolling with their 2nd Championship Record in as many events at the 2017 Men’s Pac-12 Championships in Federal Way, Washington. Shortly after taking down the Pac-12 Conference Record and Championships Record in the 200 medley relay, the Bears returned to take down the Championship Record mark in the 800 free relay.

Splits Comparison:

Team 1st 200 Split 2nd 200 Split 3rd 200 Split 4th 200 Split Final Time
Cal 2017 Long Gutierrez– 1:33.44 Andrew Seliskar– 1:32.35 Michael Jensen– 1:33.38 Ryan Murphy– 1:32.90 6:12.07
USC 2014 Dylan Carter– 1:33.61 Dimitri Colupaev-1:34.16 Reed Malone- 1:32.85 Cristian Quintero- 1:31.92 6:12.54

Sophomore All-American Andrew Seliskar was instrumental to the win, as he tore through the water in 1:32.35 split on the 2nd leg to pull ahead of the USC Trojans, who took the early lead thanks to Dylan Carter‘s speedy 1:32.15 leadoff split. Senior Ryan Murphy was also sub-1:33, bringing the Bears home in 1:32.90 as they took down USC’s former Championship Record of 6:12.54 from the 2014 Pac-12 meet.

He Gets It Done Again

1:32.15 is actually Dylan Carter’s split from tonight, not 2014. He swam a 1:33.61 to lead off the old record. (I only know because I just had to check to see if he really had gone the exact same time lol)

I was about to say the math doesn’t make any sense

Very good 1.32.16 lead-off leg by freshman Cameron Craig too.
He was one of the revelations of last junior pan pacs and he confirms his talent now at ASU with Mr Bowman.
